The Proclaimers in St. John's

For years NewfoundlandInCanada has used a quote from the Proclaimers song "Cap in Hand" in expressing a common sentiment of Newfoundland and Labradors place in Canada. It reads "We fight - when they ask us, We boast - then we cower. We beg for a piece of what's already ours. I don't understand why we let someone else rule our land."

Many have commented to me that this quote rings true for the feelings of so many in Newfoundland and Labrador. NewfoundlandinCanada used another quote from Proclaimers in "Who is a Newfoundlander or Labradorian" which quotes a line from "Scotlands Story."

NewfoundlandinCanada was pleased to have received permission from The Proclaimers for the use of this quote. So much of what Craig and Charlie Reid write has relavance to Newfoundland and Labrador and global concerns.

Since they will be playing is St. John's at Club One this weekend I take the opportunity to thank them and wish them a great show.
